When you’re facing DUI or criminal charges that can have life-changing consequences, you need an attorney who understands the Torrance court system.
The attorneys at Chudnovsky Law can assist with:
1) Law enforcement interviews
If you’re accused of a crime, you’ll be questioned by prosecutors and police officers. You should never answer questions or agree to these interviews without your lawyer present. Our attorneys will be there, helping you through questioning, protecting you from unfair questions, and making sure you don’t say anything that will harm your defense.
2) Bail hearings
Our attorneys can assist with bail hearings, and work to reduce or eliminate bail. We can also help with bail bonds by helping you secure an attractive 7% bail bond rate, instead of the standard 10%.
3) Negotiating plea bargains
Most criminal cases are settled outside of the courtroom through case dismissals or plea bargains. In fact, only 2% of all felony cases in California were settled by trial for fiscal year 2013-2014. This statistic understates the rate for those with private counsel because it includes a large number of defendants that cannot afford to hire a lawyer.
Our attorneys will fight to get the charges dismissed or negotiate with prosecutors for a fair plea agreement and/or alternative sentencing that minimizes penalties and may result in charges being dismissed after a probationary period.
4) Courtroom hearings and motions
Court appearances are a necessary inconvenience that can complicate your work and family life. Our attorneys can make most of your court appearances on your behalf, so you can focus on getting your life back on track.
In felony and domestic violence cases, you may be required to make some court appearances, and your attorney will be right there by your side to guide you.
5) Court or jury trial
If you choose to decide your case by trial, our attorneys have the courtroom skills and trial experience to skillfully challenge any evidence presented against you. We know how to fight the prosecutor’s charges and win your case.
